Kygo's Touching Tribute To Avicii At Coachella 2018

On Friday, April 20th, 2018, the Swedish DJ Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, was found dead at the age of 28. The cause of his untimely death is still unknown. It also happens to be the second weekend of Coachella and now many performers are paying tribute to one of the greatest DJs of our time.
Last night the Norwegian DJ, Kygo took to the main stage and at the end of his performance gave an emotional tribute to Avicii. Kygo started off by addressing the audience:

“Hey Coachella, I think most of you guys have heard, but today is a very sad day for music. Earlier today, I got the news that Avicii passed away at only 28 years old. Avicii was my biggest musical inspiration and he was the reason I started making electronic music. So I don’t think I would have been on this stage tonight if it wasn’t for him and I know he has inspired millions of other producers out there. So I want to end my set tonight with my favorite Avicii song. In honor of Avicii, I want you guys to dance and sing along and celebrate the life of a true musical genius.”

Kygo then played Avicii’s 2017 single “Without You.” During the song, a black and white photo of Avicii appeared on the Coachella screens along with the words, “Rest In Peace We Will Miss You 1989-2018.”

Additionally, Kygo posted an Instagram photo of the two of them on Friday with the caption, “Can’t believe this is true… My biggest inspiration and the reason why I started making electronic music. Thank you for all the joy you brought to the world with your music.”

Other musicians and producers have also mourned the loss of the Swedish singer. Ariana Grande joined in on Kygo’s set to sing her new single “No Tears Left to Cry.” Calvin Harris, Zedd, DJ Snake, Marshmello, Deadmau5, Liam Payne, Charlie Puth and Dua Lipa have all expressed their condolences on social media.
